See the Cast of ‘Basic Instinct’ Then and Now

Basic Instinct
TriStar

Back in 1992, director Paul Verhoeven unleashed 'Basic Instinct,' starring Sharon Stone as a writer, psychologist, and the prime suspect in a murder investigation, who strikes up an affair with the detective investigating the case, played by Michael Douglas. Originally given an NC-17 rating by the MPAA, the steamy thriller was a massive success and was praised for its groundbreaking depiction of sex in mainstream cinema. 'Basic Instinct' became so iconic that in 2006, Sharon Stone starred in a sequel without Verhoeven's involvement -- though it was a critical and commercial failure. Twenty-two years later, we're revisiting the cast of this modern neo-noir classic to see what they're up to now.

Why That Controversial ‘Game of Thrones’ Rape Scene Was Supposed to Be Disturbing

Game of Thrones Jaime Cersei
HBO

Much discussion has been sparked today following an eyebrow-raising sex scene (to say the least) in last night's episode of 'Game of Thrones'. In "Breaker of Chains," incestuous and morally corrupt siblings Jaime and Cersei Lannister do what incestuous and morally corrupt siblings do best, but there was something very different about the dynamic between the two this time around: namely, it played out as a borderline rape (watch the scene in question here). But, things are much more complex than that in 'Game of Thrones,' particularly between these two characters. Given the world's proclivity for the graphic exploitation of women, the scene is definitely scandalous.

It's obvious, even from her facial expressions, that Abby Elliott still has mixed feelings about her time on 'SNL.' Which seems like a completely normal reaction, considering how all-encompassing the demands of that show can be for be anyone, especially someone like Elliott, who had almost four full seasons (she joined the cast for the eighth show of the 2008-2009 season) on the show, and was then not brought back for a fifth.

From the Set of ‘Salem’: WGN’s New Horror Drama Unveils Its World of Witchcraft and Fanatics

WGN Salem Set Visit Witch
WGN

It was an exceptionally seasonable March afternoon in Louisiana that a group of reporters piled into a bus headed through rural Louisiana toward the exterior 'Salem' set in Grand Cane, located in a farmland forest that entirely concealed the grandeur within. Mind you, I’d never been on an exterior set visit for such an elaborate period drama, let alone one that constructed a working town of 25 exterior buildings (and 13 custom interiors) against the backdrop of a scenic lake, which itself we’re told would be digitally expanded to better emulate the Massachusetts coast.

WGN America’s ‘Salem’ will hit the tubes this weekend as the network’s first original scripted drama, and, more now than ever, I remember the quick response director David Von Ancken ('Hell On Wheels') gave during an on-set interview for ‘Salem,' as I asked what message the network intended to convey with such a bold choice for its first original. “We’ve arrived,” he shot back, a phrase I’d repeat multiple times throughout the weekend.
